TAK­ING FA­THER HOME

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

A teenage Chi­nese boy leaves ru­ral Sichuan Prov­ince for the city, to look for his es­tranged fa­ther. With just two geese in a bas­ket on his back, the teenager meets friends and weaves through the city to an en­counter that plays out in un­ex­pected ways. Di­rec­tor Ying Liang frames each scene as one long, in­tri­cately staged shot. Screens as part of the Asia Now se­ries. Sun­day, June 13, only. Not rated. 101 min­utes. In Man­darin with sub­ti­tles. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Robert B. Ker) See story, Page 50.
